Dunlop enjoy 13-try spree; RUGBY: Coventry and Warwickshire teams in weekend action.

Byline: Alan Poole

SCRUM-HALF Danny James piled up 30 points as Dunlop demolished Edwardians 85-3 to maintain their early-season pace. They stamped their mark on the Midlands Three West (South) fixture when prop Tim Pitman powered over and James slotted home the first of his ten conversions.

It was 40-3 at the interval - James, winger Stuart Edwards (2), flanker Andy Solomon and centre Steve Adcock adding touchdowns. And they collected seven more tries in the second period, with Edwards completing his hat-trick and James, Solomon, No.8 Mark Challis chal·lis

SOUTHAM had to work rather harder to claim their second win from two starts, seeing off Kings Norton See also: King's Norton, Leicestershire  33-18.

They suffered an early setback when Pete Burnell, having opened their account with a drop-goal, was forced to retire with an upset stomach, but winger Chris Orfeur crossed in the corner to make it 10-3 and claimed a carbon-copy second soon after the interval.

OLD LEAMINGTONIANS look set for a challenging campaign after slumping to a 53-5 reverse at Redditch, Robbie Ridler supplying their lone try, while good performances from back-row Luke Staton and scrum-half Mark Foley Mark Adam Foley (born September 8, 1954) is an American politician who served as a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 until 2006, representing the 16th District of Florida.  provided further consolation.

HINCKLEY are the only 100 per cent side after four matches in National Three Midlands, a 30-20 decision at Luton leaving them three points clear of the field.

But KENILWORTH are nicely placed in fifth spot after edging out Peterborough 22-20 - their first-ever victory at Fengate - with a last-gasp try from centre James Hersey.

 first half, they led 6-0 at the break with two Lowe penalties and stretched that to 13-0 when the same player converted a Marcisauskas try.

Mike Rust countered with a try when Bruce Storey sparked a slick break, only for Peterborough to claim a 20-5 advantage when winger Carrington followed up a clever punt for a try converted by Lowe.

 pounce was upgraded by Jamie Peacock and the latter then instigated the move that enabled Hersery to dart through for the decider.

LEAMINGTON suffered their first Midland One West defeat when they went down 27-18 at Sutton Coldfield, but their all-round display suggests that they are more than capable of sustaining a promotion challenge.

They were only 12-11 adrift at the interval, Tom Secher logging two penalties before back-row Ben Pirie muscled his way past three defenders to claim the only try of the half But although they battled bravely to peg back a 22-11 deficit - a stirring pack push setting up Jim Robertson for a self-converted try - injuries had reduced them to 13 men when Sutton made certain with a late touchdown.

NEWBOLD ON AVON are propping up the Midlands Two West (South) table after a 38-10 reverse against early pace-setters Worcester Wanderers.

Basic handling errors saw Newbold concede three converted tries before Glenn Bond's penalty got them on the scoresheet, but they reduced the interval deficit to 26-10 when wellwon possession set up Sam Viggers's 35-yard dash to the line and Bond rammed home the penalty.

Newbold continued to battle well in the second period, Ben Harrison exemplifying their efforts in attack and defence, but they couldn't match their hosts' points-accumulating sharpness.

COVENTRY WELSH made a promising start to their Midlands Four West (South) season with a 30-12 verdict against derby rivals PINLEY. The home side shrugged off an early setback to lead 10-7 at half-time, Luke Horan converting Rhidian Booth's try and adding a penalty.

And with newly-installed skipper Ryan Hughes setting a demanding standard, they added further touchdowns via Andy Rowlands and Booth, Horan converting both and kicking two more penalties.

KERESLEY were betrayed by earlyseason jitters as they went down 55-17 at Evesham.

Spencer Atkins and skipper Tony Allcock scored tries, the latter converted by Connor Martin, to contain the midway deficit to 22-12 but their only success of the second period was a swift move cleverly started by Neil Hannah and finished in style by Michael Lloyd-Bailey.

TRINITY GUILD built on an impressive first-half display to subdue COVENTRIANS 31-21.

Rich Bennett improved tries by centre Luke Billyeald, fly-half Rob Meikle and winger Paul Ellis and added a penalty to open up a 24-0 lead at one stage.

Coventrians staged an impressive revival before they were killed off by another seven points courtesy of Ellis and Bennett.
